Welsh government plans new Clean Air Act

A 12-week consultation opened today on a new Clean Air Plan for Wales, intended to act as a 'stepping stone' to new primary legislation on air quality, according to the Welsh government.

It has promised to deliver a white paper on a Clean Air Act for Wales ahead of the next elections to the Senedd, in May 2021. This is expected to endorse the adoption of the World Health Organization’s guideline limit on fine particulates (PM2.5).

The white paper will also lay out how the existing Clean Air Zone Framework for Wales, local and quality management regime and smoke control area provisions will be combined into “a single comprehensive framework”, says the consultation.
